Mid-sized Manufacturing and/or Distribution Enterprises Benefit From Harnessing the Power of SAP Business One Analytics Powered by HANA

SAP recently introduced SAP Business One Analytics powered by SAP HANA.  HANA, which stands for high performance analytical appliance, takes advantage of (1) a powerful, new “in-memory” development and (2) a very recent achievement attributable to the same development team that built SAP HANA.

SAP HANA contributes mightily to any solution that is derived from the exciting innovation of in-memory computing by which Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) data is compressed and held in main computer memory or RAM which results in truly remarkable improvements in speed and quantity of data processed. That achievement not only facilitates generation of reports in astoundingly short time but it also delivers extensive reports in record time.  Further, HANA allows small and midsize businesses to re-engineer some of their most complex business processes and build new business processes that give them a competitive edge in the market.

Here are some examples of how SAP Business One customers use this new technology to their advantage.

One international Communications and Information Technology (IT) company with 500 employees and 286 SAP Business One users provided SAP with this “feedback”: “The enterprise search is fantastic! Users can now find any relevant data or transactional information based on a Google search very quickly. The Crystal reports reading from HANA run much faster. Reports that took minutes to run, now take seconds!  The interactive analysis gives the users access to relevant information directly in Excel pivots in which they are already comfortable. This gives them the needed confidence to generate their own reporting content making them less dependent on consultants or power users. The real-time ‘live’ replication ensures all reports have up-to-the-second information and therefore allowing accurate decisions to be made.”

The IT Director of an Australian distributor of computer peripherals remarked that “With SAP Business One Analytics, powered by HANA, we are a more proactive organization and a company that is easier to do business with and have a better understanding of who our customers are and how they do business with us”. The key benefits that the company derived include: (1) Various Crystal reports have been migrated, reducing analysis time from 15 minutes down to under 1 minute; (2) Allows users to leverage their existing Excel skills; and (3) Business data integrated into SAP Business One at “in-memory speed” can be easily modified and customized.
